Idaho Songs Project
Kick off 2023 Idaho Gives with the Latah County Historical Society. Come listen to Gary Eller as he features music from his research on the Idaho Songs Project, May 1st at 7pm PST on the McConnell Mansion lawn. Bring your own blanket/chair, snacks, and enjoy some time outdoors listening to early Idaho music. In the case of inclement weather, the event will be moved inside the McConnell Mansion.
The Idaho Songs Project was started in 2006 for the purpose of finding, interpreting and preserving songs written before the radio era (before 1923) about Idaho’s early people, places and events. Such songs provide unique glimpses into the culture of early Idaho from the bottom up. This program will highlight songs from Idaho’s panhandle. CDs and books based on this research will be for sale.
